When will the competition be held?

  • The second stage involves acceleration (preparation of candidates for the next stage), dividing the participants into groups and formulation of business ideas; this stage will be held on May 16-18.  
  • The third stage, which is voluntary and involves meetings with professional mentors as well as getting further consultations to do tasks, will be held on 2-3 June.
  • The final stage of the competition, at which candidates will present their business ideas and the winning team will be selected, will be held on June 9.


✔ First place – each member of the winning team will be awarded a 1000 GEL scholarship voucher by Ilia State University *;

✔ Second place - each member of the team having been ranked second will be awarded a 650 GEL scholarship voucher *;
